European countries, yesterday, continued their quest to have Nigeria export more Liquiefied Natural Gas, LNG, to the European Union, as they seek a move away from Russian energy dependency.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is forcing Europe to diversify its energy supply.
Energy Vanguard gathered that LNG is fast becoming the low carbon alternative fuel of choice for domestic, marine and automotive consumption.
Also, Nigeria terminal currently running on six trains, has an LNG production capacity of 22.2 Million tons per annum, Mtpa, which is expected to increase to 30Mtpa by 2030.
However, the European Union (EU) Ambassador to Nigeria, Samuela Isopi, led European delegation which includes, Ambassador of Portugal, Luis Barros; Ambassador of Spain, Juan Sell; Ambassador of Italy, Stefano De Leo and Deputy Head of Mission (France), Olivier Chatelais, on a courtesy call on the Management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Ltd to strengthen its partnership with Nigeria in the energy sector.
